Review Asus N61JV-JX007V Notebook


Impaired Optimus. Nvidia's newest switchable technology amongst graphic cards stands for best runtimes in powerful mainstream notebooks. The following review explains why the 16 incher doesn't live up to the credo.

Quiet and cool, Good application performance, Many connections, Hardware switch for WLAN, Energy savings fans will love the low power consumption in idle

TFT's low brightness, Low contrasts & viewing angles, Short battery life, Spongy keyboard, A stronger battery would have made the Optimus successful here. This way, the technology is only suitable for saving energy

Asus N61J


In and of itself, the Asus N61J wouldn't normally enter our radar. Let's face it: A $900 16-inch desktop replacement is wholly pedestrian—an affront to the sensibilities of most power users. But the N61J has the distinction of boasting one unique...

Optimus hybrid graphipcs; portable proportions; HyperThreading; USB 3.0

Battery life isn't great; unfriendly to dual-head USB cables; mediocre at games

If you want a desktop replacement that truly does everything, there are more powerful portables to be had, albeit at a higher price. But if you’re looking to save some dough, and you’re not a fanatic about gaming, the N61J is a pretty good bargain.

The Asus N61Jv is a portable entertainment powerhouse that doubles as a desktop replacement.

ASUS N61Jv-X2 Review


We like the design and power that ASUS packs into the N61Jv-X2, and those who like to back up a lot of data will appreciate the blazing USB 3.0 port. But while Nvidia's Optimus technology adds battery life to this laptop, we think a lot of shoppers...

Stylish design, Large, comfortable touchpad, Strong graphics performance, USB 3.0 port, Above-average battery life

Lid picks up fingerprints, Low-resolution screen, Speakers could be better

ASUS N61Jv: 16in multimedia laptop packs two graphics chips to balance power and performance


This new Core i5 laptop from ASUS features USB 3.0, E-Sata, multi-touch and Optimus graphics technology in a 16in chassis

Overall it the ASUS N61Jv seems well targeted at multimedia users. The low native resolution could get annoying if you have a text-heavy workload, but it means that when the Optimus graphics technology kicks in and NVIDIA's GeForce GT 325M takes...

Asus N61J (N61JV) Optimus Ready Notebook


Finally 3D gaming and long battery life can coexist

Optimus technology works well, good gaming performance, spacious chiclet keyboard, solid build, stylish design, bright 16" LED screen, USB 3.0 port, attractive pricing

Low resolution screen, USB ports placed too wide apart
